February Citrus sale

The second DCSC Citrus sale will take place January 9 - 23.

The number of fruit in a case is 72 or 88s - the smaller fruit tend to be juicier and last longer.  The California Grapefruit is sweet, juicy and at the peak of ripeness.  The grapefruit are the larger size at either 40 or 48 per case.   

The costs are:     

        Oranges (56-80 per case)               - $53 per case

        Grapefruits (30 -48 per case)        - $51 per case

Fundraising credits are the same at $10 per case.
